lot of the talk has been centered on taxes and health care but he's also taken time to talk about his sin expirations and the people he's met on the campaign trail. >> i met someone named jane horton. she also suffered tragedy in her life. her husband christopher was killed in afghanistan as she was packing up a care package when a knock came at the door that he was tragically killed there. what did she do? she didn't fall into sadness and despair, but instead went to work to help other families that had lost loved ones and served our nation. she went to the funeral for her husband when his remains came back and this was at a time when misguided people were protested funeral services of our servicemen and she was asked, what do you think about these people protesting people at your husband's people. she said, quote, chris died for them to be able to protest. this is quite a nation we live in. >> florida is just the start of the week for mitt romney. he's got an even bigger event coming up tomorrow and as our political editor paul steinhauser reports it's just another big week on the c

obama's and mitt romney's first face-off they spard over health care and taxes. but they didn't mention gun control, a topic my next guest says should have been raised, especially in colorado, a state that had two of the country's deadliest massacre in 19 years. steven barten is joining me now to talk about this. he was one of 58 people wounded in the aurora shooting, shot in the face and the neck. steven, good morning to you. first of all, let me ask how you're feeling. >> i'm feeling just fine. my recovery's gone remarkably well. >> well, that is certainly good news to hear. you were one of the lucky ones. what would you liked to have seen wednesday night at the first presidential debate in terms of the discussions about guns. >> i mean really any specific discussion or reference to the issue would have been great. ideally i would have loved both candidates to talk about whether they support having a background check. that's a huge issue and it would have been great to see, that especially in an auditorium ten miles from a theater where i was shot and so many others were shot.

% of americans who don't pay income taxes. >> 47% of the people will vote for the president no matter what. >> reporter: romney tried to put an end to the controversy once and for all on fox. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. >> reporter: democrats maintain that tone deafness extends from main street to sesame street. so, obama aides sent a protester in a big bird outfit to mock his call to end funding for pbs. romney will spend part of the weekend in debate prep and the other part in hitting the president on the economy as a senior romney adviser put it, job growth should not be the new normal. >>> now to that shooting that killed a u.s. border patrol agent. the fbi now thinks he may have died by friendly fire. 30-year-old nicholas ivy was shot and killed this week in arizona. shell casings found at the scene was fired by ivy and another agent who was wounded. >> as you know, investigators have made progress into the investigation into agent ivy's death
